Drowning in things...

I'm feeling quite a bit overwhelmed lately and really need to sort things out. I'm drowning in readings, notes, homework and housework. There is so much on my mind to do and some much in my life that needs doing but each time I'm finally home, I just fall into bed exhausted. It's come to the point where I have to schedule something as normal as a shower and  drop everything to make sure that it gets done.

Perhaps I should dedicate my Friday afternoon to just sorting things out, I guess I wish I had had a bit more time before Uni started to sort things out and looking around my room, but who am I kidding, I have so much stuff that I could be here a whole month and it would still look the same, but I just don't feel inspired to start anywhere...I should have a giant clean up. Giant, No Mercy, Clean up.

Thursdays begin a little later, which gives me more time to enjoy my breakfast, if I just put together a ROUTINE then I know that I can do this...Right now, the biggest pleasure I have is reading books about Asia, eating and doing ANYTHING that isn't Uni related. Also need to check my spending...

I shall return with a Routine!!

People can be really crap sometimes, 
and when I say really, I mean really really really crap. 

But some friends of mine gave me some really great advice like...

"If they are friends worth having then they will only take sides based on their own judgement not based on the judgement of others.  And this year will be the best if that is what you want it to be."


"Remember those people who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind..."

So let's get past this and move on. No one needs pain in their lives especially when it can be avoided. Stick with the people that you love and respect and who give it right back to you and maybe make some new friends too. x

Terry Fox

So basically all that crap about endorphins making you feel true.
This morning I was in the Terry Fox Run for Cancer with my friend Leah and I really enjoyed it. The best part was walking around the path which is right near the lake and when it's so early in the morning, the water is transparent and stunning.
Even better...I feel amazing! I had a really rough day yesterday which led me to being antisocial and depressed but today, after having participated in the run, I feel confident and full of energy.
The gym in my apartment complex opens tomorrow so I'm going to really commit to going. I feel that exercise done with pleasure is way more satisfying than done as a chore, but then again, isn't everything?

Life is strange, but you already knew that.

Jet lag made me get up at 7 every morning and I've harnessed this phenomenon to hopefully keep it that way, the best part? Waking up to the most beautiful sunrises my eastwards facing apartment has ever seen. However nothing compares to English skies.
My mum has left for Italy, we only had a week together and now I'm taking care of Mima and newly arrived: Coco! Only 4 months old, it was a surprise my mum got while I was in England. I opened Skype one day to see this instead of my mum's face...
 I wish they got along but Mima is still quite territorial and getting a little old as she is 12, though still small. Now they keep chasing eachother but I get the feeling it's beginning to be more like play, especially since they're home alone for most of the day now that Uni has begun.

I had a job seminar on Monday and got called back before I even got home. Had the interview on Wednesday and am  feeling really confident about it.

However yesterday was a really dark day, and torrential rain soaking through all our clothes did not help. There are a million things that could trigger a mild depression but when I got home I found a message from my doctor saying I needed to book a appointment to see her as soon as possible. Having just had a CT Scan, this makes me really nervous. I was so distracted in fact, that I missed my History class. I can't call the office for another hour so life goes on until then.

Cross you toes...xx

Take a Bite out of Life?

Tomorrow is a crazy day, as well as the first day of classes again and I am so excited.

All I can say now is...

cross your fingers
hold your toes
knock on wood
wish me luck
and say a prayer for me :)

Guess whose back...

I don't know about you guys but I hate myself for not posting and will probably be glued to my blog for the following days proceeding Uni to fill this all up with all my photos and thoughts and adventures.

I can't believe it's September.

On my way out of the airplane, I passed over the seat I had sat in back in May and sighed, who knew it would go by so fast?

With a to-do list as long as my arm and a fragile heart, here's to a new year...

Speak soon x

Where in the World...
